“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” —Eleanor Roosevelt
Couples and Families
Hello, my name is Charity! I am a clinical therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families who are grappling with interpersonal wellbeing and life-cycle transitions. I certainly recognize that deciding to begin therapy can feel unnerving in terms of getting started, the commitment to treatment, and finding a suitable therapeutic fit.
What I Do
Prior to becoming a therapist, my clinical social work training has included public and charter elementary schools, an LGBTQ+ community center, the family shelter system, an out-patient substance clinic, and an out-patient trauma clinic. My training reflects work with diverse populations and a desire to support clients in achieving a better sense of self. These relational experiences have provided me with a multidimensional lens that has enlightened my insight into the challenges that many people face.
How I Help
My approach to therapy is collaborative, direct, and psychodynamic which simply means that together, we will explore your process of continued development of growth and personal resilience, self-discovery, healing, and the achievement of your goals. Theoretically, I draw from attachment, humanistic, family systems, person-centered, and trauma. I aim to provide an interactive, reflective, and supportive environment.
More About Me
I received my graduate education at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work, and am a New York State licensed psychotherapist trained in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy (TB-CBT). I enjoy working with a diverse clientele and being an intricate part of their therapeutic journey.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading novels and psychology books. I also enjoy watching Bravo shows and British drama series. I am a sports fan, especially baseball and hockey. I find great delight in experiencing classical art and attending rock concerts. I love to travel, Paris, Tel Aviv, Cape Town, and my native hometown of New York City are a few of my favorite places. I am an avid runner and active volunteer for a variety of social causes.
